Discovery Princess officially delivered to Princess Cruises

The newest cruise ship in the Princess Cruises fleet – Discovery Princess - has been delivered during an official handover at the Fincantieri Shipyard in Monfalcone, Italy. Discovery Princess expands the Princess Cruises fleet to 15 MedallionClass vessels and features an evolution of the design platform used for the cruise line's previous Royal-Class ships. 

The Discovery Princess handover was attended by John Padgett, president of Princess Cruises, Captain Gennaro Arma, and Luigi Matarazzo, general manager merchant ships division of Fincantieri.

As the leading cruise line on the west coast, Discovery Princess will depart Italy and make her way to the Port of Los Angeles to sail on a series of Mexican Riviera and California Coast voyages from March 27 - April 24 2022 before heading up the Pacific coast to begin a season of seven-night Alaska cruises from Seattle.

Lush Cosmetics Introduces Adventures in Bathing

(Features press samples & affiliate links - see disclaimer)

Since Lush Co-Founder, Mo Constantine invented the bath bomb over 30 years ago, Lush has always been about advocating wellbeing. I've experienced a number of their products and spa experiences over the years and it's where I go whenever I want to truly pamper myself or a friend.

“We believe in long candlelit baths, sharing showers, massage, and filling the world with perfume”

Their latest launch sees Lush offering transformative experiences, away from endless scrolling with the launch of six bath bombs curated alongside visual and audio accompaniments. For the first time, they've been able to capture the mood and escapism meaning bath time just stepped up a gear.

4 Ways to add a positive twist on your year

This is a paid partnership with Notino - see disclaimer.

I mentioned in a previous post how the intensity of new year, new me each January can make me feel quite overwhelmed and so this year I'm doing things my own way by choosing a word for the year instead. I thought choosing a word and bringing more positive affirmations into my life was more constructive than setting resolutions that would no doubt crumble by week three and so 2022 for me is about faith and positivity. 

Having faith can apply to so many things - faith in life, faith in things I can't control especially after a tough 2021 where so much of what was happening in our lives needed faith as we couldn't change anything. 

If you're not sure where you start much like I was then don’t worry - here are some ways to add a positive twist to your year.

The 2 NEW Products available from Olverum now

(Features press samples & affiliate links - see disclaimer)

When it comes to premium bath products, Olverum has always been pretty high up there for me. Their luxurious bath oil is one of my ultimate treats and in recent weeks I've been using the Restful Sleep Pillow Mist (£25.00) too. Much to my delight, the new year has seen two new products introduced by the brand and while I've been spending most of the last four weeks getting to grips with them, it was about time I shared my thoughts.

The story of Olverum is quite unique and absolutely worth the read via their About Us page. In short, Olverum's story begins in the 1920s. For many years the brand survived by word of mouth, a cult product known only to a small number of passionate fans and it was due to a chance discovery by Michael Hawksley that it even found its way to the UK. 

I can't wait to share more about this wonderful brand with you...

Hello 2022

Okay... So I am a touch late with this post but trying to find the motivation, inspiration and just general get up and go to start the new year has been tough. I may be nearly three weeks late but hello, happy new year hopefully this means I'm kinda back to start fresh again.     

January has been tough - I think with the race to not catch covid before Christmas, the post festive slump and new year, new me shoved in your face I've wanted to curl into a ball and hide away. Instead of rushing to get my blog back up and running I've spent cosy days at home snuggling my children, watching all the family movies, diving into books and going on long walks in the winter sunshine. 

My soul needed it and I feel better. Yesterday felt like a turning point, I feel in a different mindset and I suppose I'm ready to join the world again and so that's why I'm here taking a slow step back into my blog and work again. 

A few happy things type post felt appropriate...
